Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on MTA Funding Agreement

October 10, 2015

“The Governor and Mayor have negotiated a prudent funding package for the MTA capital program that the business community strongly supports. Importantly, the Governor’s directive to the MTA  to achieve efficiency and cost savings through the use of public-private partnerships and design-build procurement methods is a breakthrough in the authority’s traditional approach to project delivery. We look forward to supporting the MTA’s implementation of a capital program that uses industry expertise and resources  to ensure that the metropolitan region has the best mass transit system in the world.”
